"There Is One God And One Mediator Between God And Men, The Man Christ Jesus" 
1 Timothy (2:5)

Additional Notes 1

The words Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are words found in scripture, but not in this order or grouping of words (titles).


This non-biblical grouping of words must not be confused, or equated, with 1John 5:7.


The “Word” (G3056) does NOT equate or translate into “Jesus”(G2424).


These two words clearly do not have the same literal meaning. It says the Word was God, not the word was Jesus, but it was God’s word/thought/will/plan that was given to us or “spoken” through Jesus, His Son. John 5:3712:4914:10 


(Ref also: three that bear record  &  How Can Three Be One?  &  1 John 5:7 )



Today we more commonly refer to believers as “The Saints” of God, those who are/were obedient followers of Christ and/or obedient to the will of God (Mat 7:21, 12:50,  Mark 3:35, John 5:30,).

Born Again


To be born again is not found, anywhere in scripture, as being in reference to water baptism!

This particular phrase is only found in the N.T. and only 3 times in the Bible  (John 3:37 & 1Peter 1:23).

Being “born” is in reference to the word “again,” someone who will be born again, or a second birth,  literally obtaining a “new life.

This is NOT just a changed lifestyle within the same physical body, as would be expected of all obedient saints of God, but a totally new life & new body, which will only occur after our current physical life (this corruptible body or seed= flesh) has ended.

Our next life (or this new birth experience) occurs at the resurrection as it did with Christ, “who being the firstborn among many brethren” (Romans 8:17) from the dead (Rev 1:5). Peter styles it somewhat like this, (having an incorruptible seed= God’s Spirit) (1Peter 1:23).

In other words, a changed body that will not decay or die (1Cor 15:52-53), becoming true sons and daughters of God, and joint-heirs with Christ (Romans 8:17).

(See: FAQ, Born Again)

Born Of Water


This phrase is only found once in the Bible (John 3:5) and because it’s meaning is often incorrectly interpreted, it has caused confusion for many, primarily because the word “water” is frequently associated with “baptism.” Water is also associated with “living” (John 4:10, 14, 7:38-39), as part of man (John 19:34), for drinking (John 4:7) and cleansing (Lev 15:13).

It is the subject matter, however, that allows us to ascertain the correct harmonious understanding of how this phrase is to be understood.

*All righteous O.T. saints and prophets, who were never water baptized, will also be in Gods’ Kingdom (Luke 13:28 NIV) (Mat 25:46Luke 1:6).

** Verse 5 is parallel with verse 6 and a clear contrast is being revealed between our flesh and spirit.


This passage is specifically speaking of BIRTHS!! Something that is being BORN!!!

The 1st birth (water) parallels to that which is “born of the flesh” – (Ref: The Humanity Of Christ ),

The 2nd birth (spirit) parallels to that which is Spirit birth, an aspect all men need to enter Heaven (John 3:5-7)

This is the “BORN AGAIN” experience of which Jesus speaks of (Ref: Born Again).


** These two words (birth & born) mean something that gives life.  “Born of water” is specifically associated with the “flesh” (Inside the womb of every woman there is a bag of fluid (amniotic sac) where the unborn baby develops. During labor, the amniotic sac breaks and the fluid drains out through the vagina. This is commonly known as “her water’s breaking”). Whether or not this is how they spoke, this is how all births take place, even the human birth of Christ.


Burnt Offerings


The Burnt Offering was performed to atone for the people’s sins against the Lord and was a dedication offering of one’s life before the Lord continually.

The burnt offering was a sacrifice that was completely burnt. None of it was to be eaten at all, and therefore the fire consumed the whole sacrifice. It is also important to note that the fire on the altar was never to go out: Lev 6:13 (NKJV)

The common Israelite worshipper brought a male animal (a bull, lamb, goat, pigeon, or turtledove depending on the wealth of the worshipper) to the door of the tabernacle. Lev 1:3 (NKJV)

The animal had to be without blemish. The worshipper then placed his hands upon the head of the animal and in awareness that this innocent animal was standing in for the sinner he would seek the Lord for forgiveness and then killed the animal immediately. Lev 1:4-9 (NKJV)

The priests were also responsible to wash various parts of the animal before putting it on the altar: Lev 1:6-9 (NKJV)

Later In Israel’s history, there were burnt offerings made twice per day, one at morning and one at evening when the first star appeared: Num 28:3-4 (NKJV)

Whenever we reference the word God (spelling with capital G) it is always holding that the correct Hebrew translation of God’s name is “Yahweh” which is taken from the Hebrew tetragrammaton (“four letters”) יהוה (Yod Heh Vav Heh), and has been transliterated into Roman script as Y H W H.

Although the pronunciation has changed over time, both are in reference to the same Spirit, God (the Almighty).

(See: The Pronunciation History Of Yahweh to Jehovah)

Grain Offerings

The Grain Offerings (called “meat offerings” in the KJV and “meal-offerings” in the ASV)

The Israelites offered grain or vegetables in addition to the animals. All grain offerings were made with oil and salt and no honey and leaven were to be used (oil and salt preserved while honey and leaven would spoil). The worshipper was also to bring a portion of incense (frankincense).

The grain offerings were brought to one of the priests, who took it to the altar and cast a “memorial portion” on the fire and he did this also with the incense. The priest ate the remainder unless he was bringing the grain offering for himself where he would burn the whole thing.

The purpose of the grain offering was an offering of gifts and speaks of a life that is dedicated to generosity and giving.

Generally speaking, the terms Hebrews, Jews, and Israelites all refer to the same people- the nation which sprang from Abraham through Isaac and Jacob, a nation promised and chosen by God in the Old Testament (Genesis 12:1-3).


Holy of Holies

The Holy of Holies was the innermost chamber in the wilderness tabernacle, a room so sacred only one person could enter it, and then only one day out of the entire year (Ref: Tabernacle and Ark).

This room was a perfect cube, 15 feet in each direction. Only one object was housed there: the ark of the covenant (Ark of the Testimony). There was no light inside the chamber other than the glow from God’s glory.

A thick, embroidered veil separated the holy place from the Holy of Holies inside the tent of meeting. Embroidered on that curtain were images of cherubim or angels.

The ark was a wooden box overlaid with gold, with statues of two cherubim on top facing each other, their wings touching. The lid, or mercy seat, was where God met with his people.

Inside the ark were the tablets of the Ten Commandments, a pot of manna, Aaron’s almond wood staff, and the Law of Moses [the civil law written by Moses — Not the Ten Commandments written by God on stone tablets] Deuteronomy 31:24-26, 2 Kings 22:8).

Regular priests were allowed in the outer holy place, but the Holy of Holies could only be entered by the high priest on the annual Day of Atonement, or Yom Kippur.




The Messiah’s Hebrew name is usually transliterated as either Yeshua” or “Yahshua” (although for different reasons).

Although the pronunciation has changed over time, both are in reference to the same person (Jesus).

(See: The Pronunciation History Of Yahshua to Jesus)

Mercy Seat

The Mercy Seat (or mercyseat)

On top of the ark was a lid called the mercy seat on which rested the cloud or visible symbol of the divine presence. Here God was supposed to be seated, and from this place He was supposed to dispense mercy to man when the blood of the atonement was sprinkled there.

In a manner of speaking, the mercy seat concealed the people of God from the ever-condemning judgment of the Law. Each year on the Day of Atonement, the high priest entered the Holy of Holies and sprinkled the blood of animals sacrificed for the atonement of the sins of God’s people. This blood was sprinkled on the mercy seat. The point conveyed by this imagery is that it is only through the offering of blood that the condemnation of the Law could be taken away and violations of God’s laws covered.

The Greek word for “mercy seat” in Hebrews 9:5 is hilasterion, which means “that which makes expiation” or “propitiation.” It carries the idea of the removal of sin. In Ezekiel 43:13-15, the brazen altar of sacrifice is also called hilasterion (the propitiatory or mercy seat) in the Septuagint (the Greek translation of the Old Testament) because of its association with the shedding of blood for sin.

What is the significance of this? In the New Testament, Christ Himself is designated as our “propitiation.” Paul explains this in his letter to the Romans: “Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed” (Romans 3:24-25 NKJV).

Peace Offerings

The Peace Offering was a meal that was shared with the Lord, the priests, and sometimes the common Israelites. The worshipper was to bring a male or female oxen, sheep, or a goat.

The ritual was closely compared to the burnt offering up to the point of the actual burning where the animal’s blood was poured around the edges of the altar. The fat and entrails were burned and the remainder was eaten by the priests and (if it was a free-will offering) by the worshippers themselves. This sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving was most of the time a voluntary act.

The Peace offerings included unleavened cakes. The priests ate all except the memorial portion of the cakes and certain parts of the animal on the same day the sacrifice was made, and when the worshipper joined in and the offering was free-will the worshipper could eat for 2 days of the whole animal except the breast and the right thigh which were eaten by the priests.

Jacob and Laban offered a peace offering when they made their treaty (Gen 31:43 NKJV). It was required to make offerings while making a vow of one’s life to God and thanking Him with praise while free-will offerings were voluntary.

Sin Offerings

The Sin Offering expiated (paid the debt in full) the worshipper’s unintentional weaknesses and failures before the Lord. Lev 4:1-4 (NKJV)

Each class of people had various ordinances to perform:

Sins of the high priest required the offering of a bull and the blood was not poured on the altar but sprinkled from the finger of the high priest 7 times on the altar. Then the fat was burnt, and the remainder was burned (never eaten) outside the camp “unto a clean place” where the sacrifice was made and the ashes were poured out. Lev 4:12 (NKJV)

Sins of the leaders required the offering of a male goat. The blood was sprinkled only once and the remainder was poured around the altar as with the burnt offering.

Sins of the common Israelites required female animals, goats, lambs, turtledoves, or pigeons and in the case of the very poor an offering of grain was acceptable just like a meal offering.

Unintentional sins were difficult to identify and could happen at any time and therefore the priests worked closely as mediators with God and the people and were there to instruct the people as they sought the Lord. In case any sins were not brought before the Lord there were offerings for the nation and for the high priest which covered them all in a collective way. On the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) the high priest sprinkled blood on the mercy seat for his own sins and the sins of the nation.

The Book Of Yahweh

Tenth Edition: 6-1998

Note: The passage(s), if cited within this website, have been verified against the original writings and I have found that they can be translated and/or transliterated correctly in the manner reflected.

*(This is not an endorsement to any other aspect of this book)

Scriptures cited (from The Book Of Yahweh) which have been changed from the King James version are said to:

  1. Be the first English translation to trace and translate Part Two, erroneously called “New Testament,” from the original Hebrew in which these books were originally written.
  2. Restore Yahweh’s name in all the scriptures where it was inspired to be written, and in places where it was used in compound with place names and personal names (i.e., Jesus-Yahshua).
  3. Replace vital words which were left untranslated;
  4. Remove all words and whole verses that have been added to the original scriptures (such as the “footnotes” that became supposedly “inspired” scriptures, as a later copyist included them in the Holy writings).
  5. Clearly translate the many verses that have been left unclear, and not understandable, in other translations.

Trespass Offerings

The Trespass Offering was very similar to that of the sin offering but the main difference was that the trespass offering was an offering of money for sins of ignorance connected with fraud. For example, if someone unintentionally cheated another out of money or property, his sacrifice was to be equal to the amount taken, plus one-fifth to the priest and to the one offended. Therefore he repaid twice the amount taken plus 40 %. Lev 6:5-7 (NKJV)
